|The Fairbanks Area Climbing Guide produced by Alaska Alpine Club, combined with previous editions of Fairbanks area climbing guides by Stan Justice, are the best sources for up to date and comprehensive climbing in Fairbanks environs. The guide books can be purchased at Beaver Sports in Fairbanks, AK.|

|Of the two trails that lead out of parking lot, the South Trail is the most conspicuous of the two. The North Trail is fainter, and located about 100 feet back along the road (towards the highway). Both trails gain elevation quickly but are fairly easy. The south trail is a little more developed than the north. Heading up the south trail, you'll pass by the southern end of Lowest Rock after a few minutes, followed by Gorilla Rock. Continue up the path straight to the Twin Towers. From the Twin Towers, a faint trail heads north to Falcon Rock.|

|The North Trail is marked with blue disks nailed to trees. The south trail is marked by red diskes. The trail between Falcon rock and Twin Towers is marked by white. Thanks to recent efforts to improve the trails, and keep climbers on them.|

|Why are all the climbs at Grapefruit listed as 'alpine'? This is roadside cragging.|

More importantly though, adding routes that directly quote a guide book is a blatant infringement of copyright. MP is supposed to supplement the guidebook and not replace it. If you want to add a route, go climb it and then add it using your own words.
Guidebooks inherently have inaccuracies such as bolt count, route length, anchor info, etc so you're not doing any favors by repeating misinformation when you could have firsthand knowledge that may be more accurate. Even lamer is adding routes with little or no description...
